Best Buy! One of the South Okanagan Valley’s most popular proprietary white blends, this Alsatian-inspired blend of estate Gewürztraminer with Pinot Gris from nearby Fairview Vineyard, which is owned by Hester Creek vineyard manager Iqbal Gill. It’s a charming wine all the way through, as its tropical profile of lychee picks up gooseberry, lavender and a twist of lemon. A spoonful of canteloupe adds some roundness to the midpalate. The residual sugar checks in just at below 1%, but the finish is brisk, slaty and complex with white pepper and lime. Enjoy with salty tapas, some savory tapenade and a baguette or Hester Creek chef Adair Scott’s Riccioli Prawn Primavera, which features Grana Padano cheese.
